Villagers walking speed is frustrating

They’re just too fast. As fast as cavalry. Just imagine you find 15 annemy villagers 20km away from their town with 20 horsemen soldiers of your own. You can’t kill any lol because those 15 miners will walk faster than horses carrying their 25kg gold bag on their back.

Would be cool to at least add a “harass” tech —> hand-to-hand attacks apply a % of slow during X sec on ennemy villagers or something like that.

What do you all think ?
